You should take a weekend (or several) and give different classes a test run. It'll help you narrow down options. Talking with other dancers (don't be shy) can give you a lot of leads to go on too.
25 is NOT old. In my opinion, it's not even too late to consider reaching an advanced/ professional level if you have the time, willpower, and body to do it. You can be 19 or 29 and no one can really tell if you have a "young" face. Maybe a teen class in your area is an option you've overlooked? Unfortunatly, the "after school" hours are usually "job" hours.
Are you limited by your job for time?
What type of "vibe" and level do you want from classes in the city? It would be helpful to know this. Do you really want to get as good as you an be, as fast as possible. Or is ballet something you want to do recreationally a few times a week.
I will strongly suggest some supplimental training in pilates or floor barre if you're serious. You can accelerate your training (the body at least), this way. It's tough to build the strength with technique classes alone. Especially if you're starting training late in the game.

I take classes all over westchester and fairfield, the schools I would also recommend are:
Central Park Dance in Scardsdale
Logrea Dance Academy in Ossining
NWCA in Mt. Kisco
Ballet School of Stamford
JCC in New Rochelle has adult classes during the day.
My new job has me traveling too much to take class every day.

Maybe it's just my own social awkwardness though. Just something I've learned that I wanted to share

I commend you all who are taking class where you're happy and learning - whether you're returning after a long or short hiatus or brand new! I used to fantasize about taking a real beginners class (never ever took ballet myself) after I saw the Joffrey Fit for Ballet, or whatever its title is, book....but somehow the idea of putting on a leotard in public was something I just couldn't handle.
Merde! to you all - I commend you and have no doubt you're all the better for pursuing it!
